Does config DB get restored

Situation:

Server 1 (Test Environment)
W2K3
SQL Server 2000
WSS 3.0

Server 2 (Production)
W2k8
SQL Server 2000
WSS 3.0

I will be doing the following:
1) Backup(SQL 2000) of Content DB (content.db) to SERVER2
2) Restore(SQL2005) of content.db to SERVER2
3) Create a new Web Application (spwebapp)
4) Attach the content.db to the (spwebapp)

Questions:

1) Will I need to also restore the Config DB or just the content DB
2 ) Does it matter if I restore to SQL 2005? Since the backup is from SQL Server 2000.

Thanks

1. You do not need to restore the config DB.
2. You should restore it to 2000 under a different name, detach it, move it to sql 2005, give it it's original name and attach it to sql 2005
